The first mapping of carbon recovery in Amazonian forests following
emissions released by commercial logging activities has been published
in the journal eLife. The findings suggest that, in some of the forests disturbed by
logging, surviving trees may be more reliable for storing carbon
emissions than newly 'recruited' trees (juveniles that naturally
regenerate in the logged forests).
The title of the paper is : Carbon recovery dynamics following disturbance by selective logging in Amazonian forests. the paper is available on this link: https://elifesciences.org/content/5/e21394

Plinio Sist, Sandra Luque and Brice Mora are conveners of a parallel session "Tropical degraded forests response to global change: current knowledge and cross-cutting research challenges for monitoring and processes understanding" at the international conference:Our Common Future Under Climate Change, that will be hold in Paris, at Unesco (7-10 July 2015). This conference will present updated knowledge and address key issues concerning climate change in the broader context of global change. This conference is organized under the framework of the COP 21 that will be hold in Paris in December 2015. Plinio Sist will talk about the increasing role of tropical forest degradation in the context of climate change and the main research challenges. The session will be hold at Unseco Bonvin Room XIII on July 8th from 14h30 to 18h00.

TmFO researchers involved in the Amazon will meet in Belém next week for a 2 day workshop. The main objectives are to start new analysis on timber volume recovery after logging and to go on with our research on the impact of logging on tree biodiversity. This meeting will be followed by a conference on forest degradation in the Amazon, 29-30 April, 2015, in Belém, jointly organized by Embrapa and Cirad with the support of the French Embassy.
